    Hey all,

    Goes without saying that I'm looking to join the community. FAQ link still appears to be broken but I've read as much as I can via various sticky'd threads etc.
    1. What games are you currently play/looking to play with TOG? - Regularly - BFV, Escape from Tarkov. Not so regularly - Fortnite, any Souls game, whatever friends are playing.
    2. What was the first machine you played games on or pen and paper game you played? - Gameboy Classic
    3. Why do you want to join TOG? - I really appreciate the general idea behind the community. Have heard via a friend of mine (WarlowAUS) that existing members are friendly, relaxed and great to play with. So many people these days treat online gaming communities like some kind of serious political hierarchy. I just want to relax, have fun and not be scalded when I make a mistake from time to time :)
    4. Tell us about yourself or anything else you'd like to share. - I'm 29, based in Brisbane, AU and I suppose I'd call myself a "filthy casual" in most respects. I generally play 2-3 afternoons / evenings (AEST) mid-week and random times throughout the weekend depending on how busy I am. In saying that, I do still find myself stumbling into gaming rabbit holes from time to time (particularly when new Souls games come out...).

    Hi @CosmicDonkey , great introduction. :)

    Who doesn't like going down the gaming rabbit hole every now and again you "filthy casual" ;p

    Welcome to the TOG community!!!

    Below is your “Induction kit” which consists of several links or shortcuts to help get you started and navigate around the TOG site a little quicker.

    Public Forums “Blue Light Disco” area i.e. Where the under 25 and non-members hang out. Note public members do not have access to any of the forums below.
    Member Forums Put your feet up grab a coffee, beer, wine or prune juice and relax with a multitude of topics including general chat, funnies, videos, VR and also some Geek stuff. (ask Kev how do you cook an egg on a CPU.)
    Member News As suggested in the link however please note that brain farts do not constitute as news and most likely belong in general chat above.
    Simulation and Sports Divisions This is for all financially challenged that might not able to afford their own personal Fighter jet or Formula one racing car or perhaps you are just reliving the old moments of glory when you were able to kick a football beyond the front letter box.
    FPS Gods and Legends are both created and destroyed here with most tiers one games being catered for. It has been scientifically proven at TOG headquarters that a 60+ year old can still outsmart a teenager with inhuman reflexes. (Bring your own tissues!)
    MMORPG This is where the imaginative dreamers go to temporarily escape their mundane existence of everyday life . If you’re lucky enough you may even find that mystical unicorn you always searched for.
    Strategy, RPG and other Games Similar to above however with fewer unicorn’s and maybe the occasional game of chess.
    Operations Where you get to annoy the guys in RED with any account issues… or just annoy them.

    All the TOG sponsored external site information can be found here Facebook , Steam and Discord .

    TOG Tinder Meet like-minded gamers. You can swipe left right and even up and down however you enter this part of our forums at your own risk and there is no money back guarantee.

    Should you happen to meet a mysterious Goat in your adventures then we apologize in advance for any bad behavior.

    The fine print - We do not provide toothbrushes should you decide to stay the night, but showering is still optional and remains personal choice (until they figure out how to add a sense of smell to the VR world.)
